I am just going to reply to this part for now because your above
assumption is incorrect. Switch is intelligent and only sends the
deltas needed to get from where you are and where you want to be. If
you switch to a branch that only has a few lines of code modified,
scattered across a couple of files, then that is all that will be sent
from the server.

Generally, I would strongly encourage you to switch your entire project.
